Meet The Winner Of SHESAID's $15K Cash Competition

Posted on: 19th August 2016

SHESAID’s lucky winner of the $15,000 Crazy Cash competition, Cowley Tanoi from Auckland, talked to the team about his reaction to winning such a great prize, what he’ll be doing with his winnings and imparts some wisdom for fellow competition entrants.
How long have you been joining online competitions like this? I have been entering online competitions for 2 to 3 years. The thrill of “maybe winning” drives me to enter online competitions.
Is this your first time to win such competition? YES! This is the first time I have ever won a competition in my whole life. I have won lotto scratchies, but nothing compares to the amount won in this competition.
Did you have any doubts about winning at all? I doubted that I actually won this competition, yes. I second guessed myself because I couldn’t believe that I had won a competition with prize money of $15,000.
What was your initial reaction when you found out that you won? At first, my heart raced a thousand miles a minute and I was in total shock. I couldn’t believe it.
What are your plans for your winnings? I’m thankful that I have won this competition so close to Christmas because it will take a lot of stress off my shoulders with presents and stuff for my kids and family. So, I plan to spoil them and pay off ALL my bills. Thank you very much for making that possible.
Would you continue joining competitions online? Definitely yes!
Any tips for competition entrants out there who haven’t won anything yet? My advice to other compers out there is “Keep entering competitions because you never know your luck. You have to be in it to win it”. Good luck!!!
